Do you know what I like about animal prints? (Well, besides the fact that they go with everything and that I automatically look sophisticated?) I like that every fall they come back in style. As if they ever left us, right? My advice: Buy leopard print, keep forever. Well maybe not forever -- I don't want that coming back on me in 2050 when you are still hanging on to a leopard pencil skirt and quoting me to the fashion police. Buy leopard print, keep for as long as you'd like. There we go; much less pressure on me now.

  3. Love your top! Lokks a bit military-ish at first, but with that skirt it gets that necessary touch of femininity!

  18. I can't get enough of leopard print, so maybe they'll last until 2050 for me, then I will be quoting you on it, and sounding super smart, lol. Animal print forevah.

  21. I just love this outfit! It's so hard for me to style animal prints since I honestly have no idea how to de-crazyify (it's a word...) them, but I like the idea of mixing them with brown...seems easy, almost! :]]]

  29. Gorgeous! And those heels.. They're so beautiful! I can't believe they're from Payless. I would shop there if it weren't for the fact that all their shoes are really high in the back and hurt my Achilles's heel area. I have really sensitive feet.

  30. If animal print ever goes out of style I'm totally screwed. I will be that rocking some leopard. But that's a better alternative than just becoming a cat lady, right?

  44. Agreed that animal print is classy...but I've definitely seen plenty of trashy animal print too. I can't put my finger on what makes the difference, but I know it when I see it. This one's classy, so no worries. Also, would we call the top olive green? Or brown? I can't decide.

  51. Love the outfit, but I think you're wearing your bobby pins wrong. Bumpy side should be touching your head and smooth side out. Otherwise you're flawless, as usual. :D

  72. I wish I could do a cat eye like you! So subtle but so pretty! And animal print is always a must. P.S I just told me husband (who calls me 'Cassie Everyday' when I'm looking trendy) that I have a girl crush on you... Awkward. But seriously I might have to go visit my relatives in McKinney so I can shop Bloom... You seriously stock that place with the cutest stuff!!

  75. I love leopard, it never goes off trend! Mixing is with emerald green or khaki green is my favourite combinations for this season, a fresh take. Gold accessories and details look great
